All over but the waiting

Well, yesterday was THE day. I took my NCLEX yesterday. Now I just have to sit around and wait for the results. I can check tomorrow afternoon-ish with the testing company to see if I passed or not, if I am willing to pay for it. There is a tip circulating among nursing students about checking with your state nursing board's website and trying to verify your license. According to rumor, you should be able to tell if you're being assigned a license or not. I'm not sure if this will work here in Ohio or not, but I'll give it a try. The test itself was not quite as bad as I had worked myself up to think it would be. The security of the testing center was tight. By the time I started taking the test, I was half convinced I was getting the nuclear launch codes, not taking a freakin' test. I completely understand why security like that is important, but jeeze.

In terms of the test itself, I have no idea how I did. The test shut off at 75 questions (which I have been told is statistically, a good sign) and the majority of my questions were higher difficulty prioritization questions (again, another statistical good sign from what I've been told), and there was only 1 question where I just picked an answer becuase I had absolutely no clue. I guess that I'll know tomorrow afternoon.

I really think that we should have been given a goodie bag of chocolate and Xanax when we walked out of the testing center. Last night I was simply too drained to worry about my results. Now that I have had some sleep, I am nervous. Tomorrow afternoon will not get here quickly enough.....

Congratulations on being done! Isn't it a terrific feeling??
